Photographer's Note

a view from the gardens of hotel La Casa Del Mundo over Lago de Atitlán towards Volcán San Pedro, the sun was just rising over the mountains to the left. I was hoping for dramatic sunrises and sunsets, but the whole week we spent in La Casa Del Mundo, every morning and evening was pale and hazy. still, the place is magic, if you happen to be in Guatemala, make an effort to go there and stay at least a couple of days.

Lago de Atitlán is recognized to be the deepest lake in Central America, but its bottom has not been completely sounded; estimates of its maximum depth range up to 340 meters. Aldous Huxley famously wrote of it: "Lake Como, it seems to me, touches on the limit of permissibly picturesque, but Atitlán is Como with additional embellishments of several immense volcanoes. it really is too much of a good thing."
